So everyone, everywhere is still banging on about Gangnam Style, the song (complete with silly dance) made famous by South Korean rapper Psy – well now one Redditor named SkeletonKeys believes he may have discovered where it originated from!
Whilst visiting the Seokbulsa Temple in Busan, South Korea, SkeletonKeys found this bas-relief sculpture that looks uncannily like some of the now infamous moves from the Gangnam Style dance! The 2 people in the picture mimic the posture of the statues and it is easy to see the resemblance between the bas-relief and the dance moves.
Another Redditor Farmerj0hn commented on the post with a slightly more feasible explanation of what the structure was intended to represent stating that it was more than likely a depiction of the ancient story of Jim Rim Hoon – a Korean folklore hero. Apparently Hoon crushed the demon of ignorance (the thing that looks like a baby) by stamping on it with his calloused feet. The demon of ignorance was alleged to be poisonous to touch, however Hoon’s feet were so tough that he was able to destroy the demon.
